...through dietary excellence. I highly recommend reading the book "Fasting and Eating for Health: A Medical Doctor’s Program for Conquering Disease", by Dr. Joel Fuhrman (1995). He describes the dietary causes of many common illnesses which include autoimmune diseases such as arthritis. By removing the causes of disease (wrong foods = toxins) the body is typically able to fix itself without the use of medications. In the case of some tricky diseases (arthritis, migraines, asthma, lupus, etc), a medically supervised water only fast is sometimes required followed by a careful reintroduction of suspect food triggers.

He has written a new book that came out this year called "Eat to Live" which is also excellent. It is being marketed as a lose-weight diet book, but its actually an impeccably documented mini-course in modern human nutrition. There is a great review of E2L here at VegSource (and there's even a discussion board here dedicated to it).
